Non-Tufted Mattresses and Futons
A non-tufted mattress or futon is a mattress that does not have quilted tufts, lace tufts or buttons on the surface of the mattress. If a mattress or futon is made with ingredients that do not shift around like latex, springs, coconut coir, polyurethane foams and gels, you do not have to tuft the mattress. The case can be sewn together with no zipper called tape edge mattress or futon. Or the mattress or futon can have a zippered cover or casing.
Most people are familiar with this type of mattress, because this is what has been offered by the top mattress manufacturers. The 5 s’s, Spring Air, Sealy, Serta, Sterns and Foster and Simmons. These traditional mattress manufacturers use tape edge, completely enclosed mattresses so you can never see exactly what is inside, are made with mostly ingredients that don’t shift or move around inside the case.
Mattresses and futons mattresses made with natural fibers, such as comfort layers of wool and cotton need to be tufted to hold the fibers together. No one wants a lumpy mattress so natural fibers can migrate around inside the mattress case this is the only reason to tuft a mattress.
Great non tufted mattresses. They are the perfect solution to going organic but still getting that Tempur-pedic feel.
